My son is 8, he is very bright and excels with any factual subject, such as maths and science. However he really struggles with handwriting and spelling.
Getting him to do his home work in a nightmare and his teaches have even let him use the computer to complete work, so there is something there to mark. I have asked his teacher about his handwriting and she says that it is way below a standard that would be expected at his age.
I would love to hear from anyone who has any bright ideas that might help him improve his written work, with out trauma. Thank you.
